Visited with 5-6 elderly relatives. Was worried about serpentine queues, but timed visit just ahead of the opening time for the evening. Completed darshan of Kali within half hour and spent leisurely time around the complex. Would highly recommend a visit, even if the location of the site is a bit off from "central" Kolkatta.
